An OK restaurant in the beautifly town of Tubac

We found to the food here to be average although no complaints about the service. We had Mexican dishes and there are certainly better places for Mexican food in the area. The place was dead on the night we visited.

A pub-like atmosphere here and found the staff friendly and service was good. The meal was average, but would come here again just for the Chimi Cheescake dessert. Tortilla wrapped cheesecake (deep-fried I think), dusted with cinnamon and sugar and drizzled with caramel sauce. The patio was enjoyable as the temperature was not too hot.

Food was good, nothing to write Mom home about. I had the pork sandwich which was pretty tasty. Service was ok. Servers seemed a little rough around the edges. Had to ask for multiple items; napkins, ketchup, spoon for soup, etc. Our server although friendly, looked as if she wanted to be somewhere else. If you go, sit on the... More

Customer sure isn't impt here. Took forever to order. Took forever to pay. 2 of 3 orders were over cooked. Don't eat here unless you want to be annoyed.

Stopped here in the afternoon after a day of walking around tubac. The patio was largely empty on a Thursday afternoon. The service was good, our waitress Haillee was attentive and pleasant. We had nachoes, which were about average for pub food. Overall, just about what you would expect for pub grub.

Went for lunch; had a burger and quesadilla. Server walked all over with our food before she finally found us so the food was cold and had to send it back.

We have visited there three times. I have read all the negative reviews most come back to service, especially at peak times. The food is very good, the server we had was a little abrupt but friendly and conscientious. Love the patio seating. You will enjoy your visit.
